Whether your passions are the arts, history, physical activities, foods and wines, touring or antiquing, Provence has it all. Aix-en-Provence, home of impressionist painter Paul Cezanne and French literary author Emile Zola, hosts the premier summer arts and cultural festivals flocked to by the Parisians. Within an hour's drive is Avignon, home of the Vatican for 400 years, Baux-de-Provence - noted as 'the prettiest (medieval) village' by the French, Nimes and Arles - home to Van Gogh, and chic St. Tropez and Cannes. Nice is 90 minutes away, Italy and skiing are just 2 hours away. Too much activity? Just want to sit still and relax on your vacation? A pool, hammock, barbecue, house stocked with books and videos, large yard for children to run around in and children's playthings, boardgames, the Provencal sun…The Reading Nook.

Location description from owner

The Provence region

An area coveted by the French because of its continual good weather, blue skies and temperate Mediterranean climate, Provence is an excellent place to come for a holiday. We are located 25 minutes from Mediterranean beaches, 2 1/2 hours drive to skiing, 1 hour to Nice and 1 1/2 hours to Italy. Provence is rich in Roman history, art history and literary history.

Arts: Walk down the cobbled streets of Aix to visit impressionist painter Cezannes actual art studio. Go west to Arles and Nimes, where Van Gogh lived and painted scenes of haystacks and starry nights. Picassos last home (and burial site) was in Le Tholonet, next to Aix. To the east is Matisses museum in his hometown of Nice, as well as artist community St. Paul-de-Vence.

History: Roman history is very close at hand. The Pont du Gard Roman aqueduct, one of the 10 wonders of the ancient world, is 1 hour north, near Avignon, the site of the Vatican for 400 years. Visit Roman ruins near St. Remy-de-Provence and the Roman amphitheatre at Nimes 1 hour west, where bullfights are still held. Medieval Baux-de-Provence, 1 hour away, is complete with a catapult, a battering ram and views to the sea. It is also the ancient home of the Grimaldis, who are now reigning in Monaco (e.g., Princess Graces family).

Touring: A wide stretch of southern France is within your reach within 90 minutes. In addition to the sites mentioned above, visit the salty marshes of the Camargues east, where wild white horses and pink flamingoes still roam. To the North: The beautiful Luberon mountains which hide Roussillon, home of ochre (visit and find out why!), picturesque Gordes built high on a hilltop, and Abbey de Senaque, a functioning monastery of historical architectural significance, surrounded by lush purple lavender.

Physical Activities: Hikes up or kite flying at Cezannes mountain, horse-back riding, white-water rafting or canoeing under the Pont du Gard, skiing in the lower Alps, bicycling along the Tour de France routes, rock-climbing on the Calanque fjords at the sea, and of course, all water sports one could expect at the azur blue Mediterranean only 25 minutes away: swimming, snorkeling, sailing, wind-surfing, scuba-diving, deep sea fishing.

Aix-en-Provence

Festivals: Aix-en-Provence is a favourite town of artists and writers. The summer cultural festival is full of life, music, theatre, dance and art. Different festivals throughout the year mean great vendors' booths (artisanal soaps, jewellery, antiques, etc.) gracing the streets of Cours Mirabeau in Aix with a grand event at Christmas time. In our little village Fuveau, the Foire St. Michel is held the 2nd week-end of September, where local artisans ply their hand-made ware and foods, while villagers dress in historic costumes to dance traditional provencal dances. The Foire occurs in conjunction with Fuveau’s international book festival where reknown international authors come to speak.
